i've known this family for several years now. they're dear friends. andy is a photographer as well, so the pressure was on when they asked me to do a session! they thought now would be a time because amaya is almost 2 years old & doing so well; she can talk with almost full sentences, sign & draw. she also has one of the greatest personalities, so smiley & happy, you'll see.
we met up at a neighborhood park & played for a bit! here are my favorites.
tickle monster :)
happy, happy girl.
i asked her to tackle them... she looked back to make sure she was doing it right! so cute.
love this family hug.
possibly my favorite.
some of just mama & daddy.
the beautiful arielle.
that's one proud papa.
& one very charismatic lil girl!
my other favorite. love this one so much.
of course this child listens & dances to gangnum style.
thank you for letting me capture your family at this sweet, sweet time!
